There are further clues that Google is seeking to re-enter the Chinese market, after job vacancies by the search giant were spotted on the professional social network LinkedIn. The job ads are for around 50 software engineering and creative consultant roles in the Beijing and Shanghai areas. The roles involve working on the search giant’s mobile business and Google Play Store. In September last year, the first signs that Google was thinking of re-entering the country emerged after it was rumoured that Google was going to launch a Chinese version of its Google Play app store which complies with the country’s strict censorship laws. This was an apparent U-turn on Google’s previous stance to censorship in China, which culminated in the search engine leaving the country in 2010, and being banned by the so-called Great Firewall of China, after refusing to censor its search results.
